We were honoured to host Alexander Jorgensen at the Visible Verse Festival this year. Alex's visual work and writings have appeared in such publications as VLAK, Moria, Drunken Boat, Noon: Journal of the Short Poem, Shampoo, The Return of Kral Majales: Prague's International Literary Renaissance 1990-2010, and others. "Letters to a Younger Poet," correspondences with the late Robert Creeley, appears in Jacket #31. His visual poetry has been exhibited in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Kolkata, Prague, Moscow, Toronto, and most recently at the 2011 Text Festival in Bury, UK. He has lived in such disparate places as the US, China, India, the Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, Oman, and the Galapagos Archipelago.
